Icon #1 Mr Whippy

An Australian beach side institution.
Shot in St Kilda at night.

I’m early in my HDR journey. I wouldn’t normally be so ‘wild’ in my settings but I was after a semi cartoon look.

It seems appropriate because I always see Mr Whippy vans with childlike wonder…and a strange rumbling in my tummy.

It makes me smile :D

If you like this, you’ll love my Australian Beaches Calendar!!

You can get this shot and 11 other beautiful beach shots for just $30 :)

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    The real tragedy of the story is that Mr Whippy told me off for taking the shot. My childhood dreams were shattered until I realise as you point out Anne he was actually Mr Whippe and not Mr Whippy. Ha ha!! Fraud…
